Burghill Community Academy School is an inclusive school, and we aim to ensure that every child is offered the opportunity to achieve their full potential, no matter what their needs may be.
The school is required to work in line with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (2014), which relates to Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014, and also the Equality Act (2010).
At Burghill Community Academy, we believe in the importance of every child achieving their ‘best’, making good progress and enjoying their learning experience through Quality First Teaching. As a school when we plan any learning opportunity, our learners and their needs are the central focus.
